If you’re looking for a little piece of Italy, Alfie’s is the place to go. Small, intimate and simple, just like a real Italian trattoria, the restaurant is run by Alfie who is Italian. Fresh homemade pasta is on the menu, and regulars say that the gnocchi has to be tried. It fills up quickly so be sure to make a booking.
Really good Italian food. Little restaurant but nice ambience. Pricing is good relatively speaking - not that its cheap but its average relative to other places that serve authentic Italian fare.
Best pizza in Pretoria. Love this place.
We had a wonderful dinner and I will definitely go there again.
The restaurant was quieter than I expected, even for mid-week and the wine selection was small but sufficient.
The food was delicious, the specials board was extensive and flavours beautifully crafted. Presentation of the pork belly was a bit dull but quickly forgotten once you started eating. The pear and walnut salad and Caprese salad were both super fresh, perfectly dressed and really lovely - I especially appreciated that the perfectly ripe tomatoes in the Caprese Salad were not cold but were at room temperature, enhancing their smell and taste.
The panna cotta technically cannot be faulted but was completely unremarkable while the Creme Brulee was perfection.
The staff were friendly, very knowledgeable, happily indulged the members of the table who had questions, were attentive but not disruptive and really elevated the entire dining experience.
No meat options available, food came at different times, fish of the day on the board and fish available were different. received different wine than asked for. If it wasn't for the good company it would really have been a horrible experience!
Alfies is one of Pretoria's real gems. No matter what you order on the menu, it will be delicious! The flavours and combinations are amazing and their home made bread never disappoints. The restaurant itself is small so booking is recommended. The atmosphere is intimate and hints on trendy. It's definitely our favourite Italian restaurant in Pretoria.
